Leeds United on verge of agreeing deal to sign Paris Saint-Germain striker Arnaud Kalimuendo, confident of signing

Leeds United are on the verge of an agreement to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward Arnaud Kalimuendo, according to 90min.

The online source have reported that the Whites will pay £21million and are now confident of securing the blockbuster new transfer to solve their striker crisis.

It is shared that Andrea Radrizzani will smash past £100million total spend in the window with this deal, as he looks to back Jesse Marsch before his first full season in charge.

Numerous clubs have been credited with an interest in Kalimuendo, but it looks as though Leeds will be the ones who get their hands raised at the end.

Newcastle, and now Italian side Sassuolo have been in the mix for the young wonder, who is being allowed to move on by the Ligue 1 champions.

Talks are continuing between Leeds and Paris Saint-Germain, but it looks as though they are set to come to an end with an agreement now in sight.

Here We Go.

Leeds have moved very quickly to get this one sorted.

It would have been easy for Radrizzani and Victor Orta to rest on their laurels as a potential deal for Charles De Ketelaere went into saga territory, but they have moved elsewhere instead.

It looks as though they will pay just above £20million too, which is much cheaper than the Club Brugge star would have cost, as he looks set on a move to AC Milan.

Kalimuendo has lit up France on loan at Lens in the past two years, and it looks as though he will be at Elland Road for the 2022-23 season and beyond.

Marsch now has options, and he has certainly been backed with the spend going above £100million with one, with no excuses surely ready.

With Leeds in Australia for the foreseeable future, it is unlikely that he will jet out there if signed, with Cagliari at home the likely first-time fans may get to see their new man.

That is if this one gets done as expected, fingers crossed.
